Bills, Marcell Dareus talking contract extention, DT focused on football
The Buffalo Bills have a menacing defensive line with Mario Williams, Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, and Jerry Hughes, but that group could be broken up next season if Dareus' contract isn't extended. Currently slated to be a free agent in 2016, Dareus and the Bills have had some negotiations about a contract extension before his deal expires, but Dareus doesn't seem too concerned with the situation.
"Whatever they’re going to do, they’re going to do," Dareus said to BuffaloBills.com. "It’s not anything that I can focus on right now. It’s out of my hands."
Dareus seems to be focused on the only thing he can control, and that's his play on the field and his performance leading up to the season. Here's what the All-Pro said about the upcoming training camp:
"I’m looking forward to it," said Dareus. "Not being out there on the field… it’s a way of life for me and way for me to escape a lot of things. I just have fun. Of course I look forward to training camp. I miss my guys. We all love each other and want the best for each other."
Getting a deal done before training camp seems somewhat unreasonable at this point, but it still remains a "top priority" in the mind of Bills GM Doug Whaley.
